People obviously don't like the comment limit. Why does it exist?
Heaven knows! >_<
I know right?! It exists b/c..to avoid spamming.
Theres a comment limit?
Exactly. And the mod that's on is a robot, they won't help.
To prevent spam. For example, someone could set up a bot to comment on every question with a link to some phishing website.
when was this made?
They tired of people chalking up big numbers with answers like "awesome" or "cool" maybe. Instead of giving a real answer to the question>
To keep wiseguys from mis-using the site for personal gain. Like writing their life's history.
To prevent mass advertising and spam.
Like most anything, some folks abuse the privilege, so all are punished. I can understand why Ask would impose a limit, but not sure if I agree with how it is implemented.
